Universal Healthcare for those with Chronic Health Conditions
One of my recent blog posts has apparently riled up some people. In a rant of frustration out of not getting coverage for a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System, again, I asked some questions in my post. For those who don't know a CGMS measures your blood glucose 24 hours a day and provides numbers every 5 minutes. It is worn under the skin the same way you wear an insulin pump infusion set.
I suppose that I did imply I wanted Universal Healthcare. And yes, I do want it. As a person with a chronic health condition I think that it would help every person with diabetes, (and without) to get medications and diabetes supplies that they need to survive without having to worry about whether or not that they can afford to pay for it.
Don't get me wrong I know that Universal Coverage is run by the Government and it is questionable as to how they would run this type of coverage.
But, before we get something like Universal Healthcare it will have to be done in a way so that everyone gets the latest technologies and advancements in medicines. We should learn from the other countries that have this kind of coverage and what has worked or has not, and make ours better.
I believe we can do it in a way that will work for every American. Everyone needs coverage for medical and medicine, you never know if you will need it down the road. If a person has a pre-existing condition it is almost impossible for them to get a health insurance provider to pick you up under an individualized plan. A Universal plan would mean no person left behind. Poor or Rich. Young or old.
Will it work for us? I don't know. And you don't have to agree with my thoughts on this issue. I am just talking out loud, hey that's what blogs are for, right? We all have our opinions and they should always be respected. I think Universal Health Coverage is something that our country needs. Something that will help every American is what I would want.
I am curious to know what other people think about this? What do you want? I want to hear it!
